简述永续合约协议(Perpetual Protocol)

有这样一个流传已久的笑话,所有的金融创新其实可以归结为两点:找出提高杠杆的方法,以及将风险进行捆绑/拆分,从而让投资者更有效地定价资产。 其中,第一个重大的金融创新要追溯到十五世纪的债务与股权分离。它将风险进行拆分,创造了两种风险持有者:债务(低风险,低回报)和股权(高风险,高回报)。

The DeFi Stack

Open Finance is one of Multicoin’s three Crypto Mega Theses, wherein Open Finance is a superset of DeFi. Over the past 12 months, there has been an explosion of activity in DeFi on Ethereum: there is $13.6 billion in capital participating in DeFi, up more than 20x over the last year.

Our Investment in OXIO

I’m excited to announce Multicoin Capital’s investment in OXIO. We led OXIO’s $3.5M seed round last year, and now the company is emerging from stealth following a $12M Series A financing led by two of the top VCs in Latin America, monashees and Atlantico Capital.

Trade-offs in the Decentralized BitMEX Space

One of the greatest innovations of modern financial markets is that traders can gain financial exposure to an asset without having to physically settle that asset—aka synthetic exposure. This dramatically expands the universe of traders who can trade in a given market, especially for harder to deliver assets. This is desirable because increasing traders and capital in a given market can help reduce volatility and increase liquidity.

探索流动性挖矿的设计空间

Decentralized Finance (DeFi) has recently seen an explosion of activity and public interest. The primary driving factor has been the discovery of “liquidity mining” as a mechanism to bootstrap liquidity. Broadly defined, liquidity mining occurs when users of a DeFi protocol are compensated in that protocol’s native token for interacting with the protocol.

开放式音频

印象中最令我欣喜的第一款互联网应用是Napster(网景浏览器)。当时是1999年,它下载歌曲的速度快达惊人的2.96Kb/秒。情况好一点的时候,下载速度甚至还可以到3.13Kb/秒。 在过去二十多年间,音乐一直是西方互联网审查最严格的内容。审查的浪潮在不同平台间一次次地上演。这些服务按照时间顺序大致为:Napster、Morpheus、Kazaa、Limewire、Piratebay、YouTube、SoundCloud、Spotify、Turntable.fm、8tracks、Apple Music等。

火币全球通用积分($HT)分析与评估

由于交易所平台币当前处于有实际需求并且未来存在着巨大机会的地位,它们目前是加密领域最有趣的一个组成部分。此前我们已经发表了一个[论点](https://multicoin.capital/2019/10/29/exchanges-are-open-finance/ "Exchanges are Open Finance "),认为平台币是获得开放金融敞口的最好方式,同时它们具备巨大的增长潜力。交易所做成规模存在着显著的门槛,这也给现有企业提供了一个清晰的竞争优势。该论点已经被最大型交易所的产品水平整合所证明。

DeFi的隐形天花板

去中心化金融(DeFi)生态在过去两年间取得了长足发展,我也一直在考虑协议层面的竞争力和市场规模。我在四月份对前者进行过分析,本文将侧重于研究后者。 对以太坊目前的DeFi现状,我最大的担忧是它受制于一种或几种隐形天花板(在下文我会进行解释)
